Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 06/05/2012

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Receipts:  1340    Last Week:  305    Year Ago:  601
 
   Compared to two weeks ago, steers under 650 lbs steady to 2.00 lower,
over 650 lbs and heifers over 600 lbs steady to 2.00 higher, heifers 
under 600 lbs unevenly steady. Slaughter cows mostly 1.00-2.00 lower with 
breaking cows 3.00-4.00 lower and bulls not tested. Demand moderate to good. 
Supply moderate to heavy as producers are thinking more and more about the 
condition of pastures and available hay supply as most of Missouri is
dry; which is quite evident as one looks out the window driving down 
the road. Hay fields that have been cut in the past couple of weeks 
are turning brown and going dormant making one check the calendar to see if
it really is just the first week in June. Several loads or near loads
of yearlings were in the offering. Slaughter cows made up 8 percent of the 
offering and feeders 92 percent. The feeder supply included 66 percent steers,
1 percent bulls and 33 percent heifers. Near 66 percent of the receipts weighed 
over 600 lbs.
